>>> let me finish tonight with the stalking of senator hagel. those who don't want this man as pentagon chief will stop at nothing. they're trying to slow the process of his confirmation, anything to give them time to find something to bring the man down. question, who are they try king to bring down? is it president obama's pick for secretary of defense? or is it the man the american people have chosen? is it about a confirmation or a desperate push to undermine the president's second term. listen to those attacking senator hagel and you'll hear the yelps of pain, this motley crew of neocons and the sun belt feel. what they hate, despise, really, is the fact that now in the history books, the american people voting in great numbers reject their war-reich jinglistic notions of what america stands for. their problem is with america's choice of who it wants to be president. who it wants to sign. and what we should be doing in this world. obama works for peace. he works hard for it. this crowd has other ideas. and that's "hardball" for now. happy valentine's, everybody. what a

. the senate will need 60 votes to end a filibuster on defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. republican senator james inhofe of oklahoma is leading the charge to block hagel. harry reid scheduled the vote to end the filibuster for friday. >> this is the first time in the history of our country that a presidential nominee for secretary of defense has been filibustered. what a shame. >> howard, is hagel, is the nomination in trouble? >> a little bit. i think in the end it will get through. but i think this a way, chuck hagel has kind of become the pinata for republicans, because he is within reach. president obama is not. president obama is on the right side politically on most of these political issues. the republicans can't touch him, and they know it. the only person they can whack right now is chuck hagel. i mean, chuck hagel is a perfectly acceptable defense secretary. and privately, most republicans would say the same thing. but for a whole host of reasons, the only person that the republican right can go after right now is hagel, and they're going to do it. >> yeah. >> and i think
, breaking news in an unprecedented, shocking move. republicans have filibustered a final vote on chuck hagel, president obama's pick to head the defense department. just four republicans join 54 democrats to support a vote on the nomination. now, you mugs know this is the first time in american history that a defense secretary nominee has been filibustered. forced to clear a 60 vote threshold. the president himself responded just minutes ago. >> chuck hagel, who, by the way, was a member of the republican caucus, a colleague of all of these folks who the republican leader mitch mcconnell and others consistently praised when he was still in the senate, has two purple stars -- two purple hearts, was an extraordinary soldier, was the head of the u.s.o., served on the senate floor relations committee. he is imminently qualified to be secretary of defense. and the notion that we would see an unprecedented filibuster, just about unprecedented. we've never had a secretary of defense filibustered before. there's nothing in the constitution that says that somebody should get 60 votes. the republican

considering the nomination of chuck hagel for more than an hour, and all against a backdrop of republican opposition. >> with respect to chuck hagel and brennan, defense and cia just in the last week, their performance in front of the committees that have to confirm them has been pretty poor. >> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the cia directorship, hagel to be confirmed to secretary of defense until the white house gives us an accounting. >> and so as the president prepares to address the nation focusing on flash points overseas and major challenges at home from gun violence to unemployment and immigration, attention also falls upon whether the republican party will spend the next four years doing exactly what it has done for the last four, opposing and obstructing everything that this president has sought to achieve. for more now let's go right to nbc's kristin welker who is live for us at the white house. good afternoon. what's the white house reaction been to word that republican senators may try to hold up the nomination of chuck hagel? >> reporter: well, marti
. there are no questions like that about hagel. he's just a nominee republicans do not like personally and do not agree with philosophically. he didn't exactly dazzle everybody at his confirmation hearing. but that is not grounds to derail a nomination. yet the gop is signaling it will make him come up with 60 votes. in the end there probably will be 60 votes for hagel, but this has never happened before. it could be happening more in the future after this. before they go too far down this road, republicans really might want to ask themselves what happens the next time one of their own is in the white house and finds himself or herself facing a democratic senate? frivolous filibustering will probably feel a lot different to them then. okay. that does it for "the cycle." martin bashir, take it away. >> i'm sure it will. thanks, steve. good afternoon. it's wednesday, february 13th. and the president has taken his message straight to the american people while marco rubio has taken his shirt to the dry cleaners. ♪ >> i'm prepared to enact reforms that would achieve the same amount of health care savings

freshman senator ted cruz of texas put on an ugly performance when he questioned chuck hagel's money. >> i will point out that right now this committee knows absolutely nothing about the personal compensation chuck hagel received in 2008 and 2009 or 2010. we do not know, for example, if he received compensation for giving paid speeches at extreme or radical groups. >> well, cruz's attacks were so over the line that even john mccain who lamb basted hagel a week ago came to the senator's defense. >> senator hagel is an honorable man. he has served his country and no one on this committee at any time should impugn his character or his integrity. >> that's what cruz was doing. and john boehner couldn't stick to the script today for the softer, gentler, kinder gop. he told reporters at a breakfast briefing that obama doesn't have -- this is the new phrase. he doesn't have the guts to cut spending. today more republican intransigents are holding up again by demanding the speaker -- actually harry reid from nevada come up with 60 votes to move forward the vote. and senator rand paul put a hold on

a week delay and probably going to be confirmed. >> senator hagel supported barack obama over john mccain. i think it is very personal with mccain. i think with other republicans, they are looking ahead to the 2014 races and they don't want to be primaried from the right. they have to look tough here. in the end, they are saying he will get through. he will get through without perhaps any republican votes or a handful of republican votes. i don't think that say very good message to send to the rest of the world the politics the republicans are playing in this. mccain, he wants to have it both ways. he wants to say i'll hold him up, but he will get through. he doesn't entirely want his fingerprints on this either. the kind of politics that everybody seems to play is blame-free politics. it is not possible. the public is sitting out there and they will blame everybody in the end. >> eleanor and emily, sit tight. we will learn details about the president's immigration reform. this is from the chief of staff. >> will be prepared and the bipartisan talks on the hill that we're supporting,
that they confirm chuck hagel. some republicans have said they're going to walk out on the committee members. they're going to walk out. what's the latest? >> the republican aides who spoke to politico said republicans will walk out. we called the republicans. said are you going to walk out? spoke to crews who were on the committee. they said we're not walking out. they're not going to vote for him but they're not going to walk out. it looks like he will have the votes in committee. it will move out into the senate. but you always have a possibility of something happening. senator inhoff from oklahoma said he might put a hold or he might try to delay the confirmation. you certainly saw lindsey graham on sunday say until he finds out what the president had for breakfast on the morning of the benghazi attacks, he will put a hold on everything and then some. it is unclear what the final confirmation is but it is a step forward at 2:30. >> bill: if they call a filibuster and john mccain said he would not support a filibuster, it looks like there would be 60 votes to stop the filibuster. >> that's righ
